Fully Monetize Your Blog with teliad

As you know, there are many different methods for monetizing your blog. While private advertising has the potential to bring in the most money, it can be quite the challenge to attract the right advertisers unless you are already a very large and well-known website. That’s why turning to a platform or marketplace can make a lot more sense.

What you’ll find, though, is that many of these platforms will specialize in only one kind of monetization. That is not the case with teliad, which serves as the subject for today’s review. Here is a platform that offers you several options to make money from the Internet, all under one convenient and potentially lucrative roof.

What Is Teliad?

The main idea behind teliad is to connect the right ad buyers with the right ad sellers. You have a blog that you want to monetize and teliad gives you the platform to get in front of a large number of advertisers.

The good news here for blog owners is that they don’t have to stress out about page views, click-thru rates or conversion rates. This is because all the advertising sold through teliad is on a flat fee basis. The advertiser pays one price, regardless of the relative performance of the ad. That’s why teliad says it is “this easy to earn consistent income” when you “register yoru blog on our marketplace.”

Text Links, Post Links, Blog Posts and Presell Pages

As far as blog marketing, teliad allows you to monetize your blog with four different types of advertising: text links, post links, blog posts and presell pages.

These all get listed in the marketplace for the the advertisers to peruse. The offers include all sorts of pertinent details — which you provide as the ad seller — like the language, PageRank, Alexa rank, description, number of external links, age of domain, relevant keywords and so on.

For the text links, you can choose the placement location (header, sidebar, footer, etc) and this is indicated in the offer. A post link can utilize existing text or new text in an existing blog post, hyperlinking that anchor text to the advertiser’s URL. A paid blog post is what you’d expect it to be, adhering to the advertiser’s instructions, whereas a presell page has a “fixed position in the website structure of the domain.” This calls for a higher price. Remember that this entire process, for both ad buyers and sellers, is done manually.

How Much Money Can I Make?

As with everything else that has to do with running a blog, the amount of money that you can make through teliad is going to vary quite widely. If you already have a reasonably popular website, you have a higher potential to earn more money. You can set your own price, but there is a price calculator to help you determine what should be fair market value.

For perspective, I used the tool to see what would be the “automatically determined average price” for a couple different ads on a few sites. A sidebar text link on DotComPho.com, for instance, came up as just $11. By comparison, a blog post on Beyond the Rhetoric was calculated to be $76. The same blog post on JohnChow.com would be $148.

Interestingly, when I tried to get the estimated price for a text link on JohnChow.com, instead of getting an actual estimate, I got this message:

We have determined that your URL has a very high quality. Your site has e.g. an above-average RankingScore (Google.com) of 640.49.
A fair market price for this offer is very individual and can hardly be determined automatically. The price can vary from 85.- US$ to theoretically some hundred US$

A Money-Making Marketplace

There will always be some concern about getting punished by Google for selling backlinks, but because the entire process with teliad is manual and the links are designed to be as relevant and natural as possible, this risk is minimized. Furthermore, because of the different types of offers available, teliad can prove to be a valuable tool for bloggers who want to make more money from their sites.

    It seems a great publisher, i think that what makes it different than other publisher is the “multiways” to monetize a website, but the website is not too popular like like many others (i see 74K on Alexa)
    Anyway thanks foe sharing this site.

    1. Elise says:

      I’ve actually read into this a little more. The platform is very international – therefore providing different languages. From their site I saw that they have teliad.de, .com, .it, .fr & .es
      Combine the Alexa ranks of those and you have yourself a huge platform.

      Definitely giving those guys a try.

      1. Fathi says:

        Yes, with those subdomains, they w’ll have an advanced Alexa traffic.

    2. alok says:

      it looks great i will surely use it in future for my blog thanks john.

  2. That sounds like an interesting service. What do you think is the minimum traffic per day that someone should have in order to making hosting ads worthwhile?

  3. Sharon says:

    Never heard of this, but it sounds like a good service. I’m gonna go take a look!

  4. This looks like a good way to monetize my blog but I’m thinking I should go ahead and get my blog redesigned to make it completely original and move into private advertising.

    I’m concerned about Google penalising me for using something like this. I really want my site to thrive and not be punished for a few badly placed backlinks.

    You say it ‘minimizes’ the risk but you would ultimately be selling backlinks. Therefore, wouldn’t it be safer and better in the long run to advertise privately?

  5. Denzil says:

    Sounds like an interesting site to check out. Thanks for the review.

  6. Robinsh says:

    Seems a good network to try at my blogs, lets see what is the value of the link at my blogs and then apply it to make more money online, thanks for this review.

  7. Edson Hale says:

    It’s a sort of all-in-one advertiser with text link, affiliate and display ads but the need is to first become high-traffic blog to get maximum benefit of it else it will simply be placed on your blog earning good for nothing

    1. Well said, Edson. I’ve tried this sort of thing before and you just end up making peanuts while your site looks horrible with scattered, crappy ads and links everywhere.

  8. Kris K. says:

    An interesting site indeed, will surely check this out soon and give a whirl. Thanks for sharing this!

  9. Alan Smith says:

    I will go for your idea but currently i am using Google adsense and other affiliate networks.

    1. How are you getting on with adsense, Alan? I’ve found that unless your site is getting ridiculously targeted traffic, you make chump change. And let’s face it, if your site IS getting loads of targeted traffic, private ads like the ones on this site, are the way forward.

      1. Phil says:

        I owned a how to site that got about 2 million monthly uniques all organic. I used Adsense, Chitika, Kontera and Amazon.

        The site was seasonal and peaked at $30k per month, but averaged $25k per month. This type of site did very well with ad networks because it was so targeted.

        To put the time into selling direct, very hard to do since to find the advertisers wasnt easy and to sell the low CPMs they wanted to pay really wasnt worth the time. Low maintenance on a site like this and cost was $1k per month for hosting.

    Teliad is quite old, now they are advertising!

  11. I. C. Daniel says:

    Never heard of them till now. Nice to see they decide it’s time for advertising to increase publishers numbers into their database.

    Best regards from I. C. Daniel

  12. Alex says:

    One of the oldest platforms around. Great way to make some extra cash, especially in combination with other monetizing tools.

    The manual integration is without a doubt a great way to keep the blog as natural as possible, which in the end profits both parties. The variety of backlink types you can sell is also a great way to diversify your earnings on one platform.

  13. Will be going over to the site and see if it might be a fit for us.

    Thanks for posting about this new site.

  14. nice idea man!!!! 🙂

  15. Sunday says:

    Having read through this review about Teliad, I have come to conclusion that it is worth trying out. However, I am not very clear is better than some of the ad programs already on board.

    I guess the best way to try is to sign up and test run! Thanks Michael for sharing this tool with John Chow dot com readers!

  16. Gautham A S says:

    Seems like a pretty decent system, will look into it.

  17. SB says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but teliad asks us to list the offered URL one by one which is a lot of work 🙂

    1. alex says:

      I’ve had the same problem. I guess it’s one of their safeguards. In our case that would mean, setting up each page individually. After that is done, each page gets checked manually by them to see if its quality fits teliad’s criteria.

  18. After reading the post, I wonder if teliad works the same with Google Adsense. Adsense do not accept free blog platform for ads. Is it possible for free blog platform to earn money through ads?
